Good Evening People of The Lord.
A Happy Day

Read the President's Christmas message below..
I felicitate with all Nigerians, especially our Christian brothers and sisters, on the joyous occasion of this year’s Christmas. On this occasion of the commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ, let us all rededicate ourselves to the virtues of peace, love, honesty, justice, equity, piety, humility and service to others which he taught.
Yes<Through the Salvation of God.

Don't we still do worse things to ourselves these days? Thee army killing the very ones they are supposed to protect, politicians plundering the resources of their own constituents and the rich oppressing the poor. They can only do to us what we are willing to do to ourselves.

Linda, there is no 'Wow' about this! How dare they smear paint on other peoples' chests. Those are men who are heads of their own households. The poor Badagry folks look so humiliated. Colonialism sucks!!
